Rare Us Navy 1901 Named & Numbered China Relief Expedition Medal Uss Buffalo


the-rooster store

Ultra rare China Relief Expedition Medal ( Boxer Rebellion) dated 1901 is named as well as numbered on the rim. ONLY 400 OF THESE MEDALS WERE STRUCK WITH THE 1901 DATE. The medal is engraved as followed " LIEUT A. C. DIEFFENBACH U.S.N. 227 U.S.S. BUFFALO". To find a traceable numbered medal is rare enough but to find a named example is simply rare. Medal is in excellent condition with a minor amount of fraying to the top of the ribbon as seen ion the photos.

Lieutenant Dieffenbach was a key figure in the US Navy accepting the M1895 Lee Navy Rifle. During his service he also was the main inspector of these rifles for the US Navy. You will be able to read many more articles about his exploits by simply doing a google search for his name.

The China Relief Expedition Medal was a decoration of the United States military which was issued to members of both the United States Navy and the United States Marines for service in the China Relief Expedition between 1900 and 1901 during the Boxer Rebellion. The medal was authorized by General Orders of the Department of the Navy on June 27, 1908. General Order 81 established the medal authorized for Naval personnel while General Order 82 authorized the medal for the Marine Corps.

To be awarded the China Relief Expedition Medal, a service member was required to perform duty within the borders of China as part of the China Relief Expedition. The eligibility dates of the China Relief Expedition Medal were from May 24, 1900 to May 17, 1901. The medal was issued as a one time award and there were no devices authorized for multiple bestowals.
The United States Army equivalent of the China Relief Expedition Medal was the China Campaign Medal. A similar medal, known as the China Service Medal was authorized by the Navy in 1941.
The ribbon of the Navy and Marine Corps version of the medal originally bore a yellow and black motif. The colors were changed in 1915 to yellow and blue to correspond with those of the U.S. Army medal issued for similar service.
The first 400 medals struck bear the date "1901." The die in use became damaged and replaced with a re-engraved die. This one, however, had the date "1900" which appears on all subsequent copies.

Unconditionally guaranteed as original. Buyer has a 14 day inspection and return privilege as long as holster is returned in the same condition as sent.
